There is a full page ad in the paper advertising Singer Heavy Duty School Model Sew & Serge Sewing Machines on sale at two locations for one day only for $149.
The ad says they are 2008 Singer machines with a metal hook (whatever that is) and are new in factory sealed cartons with 25 year limited warranty included. The description tells me that it does buttonholes, invisible blind hems, monograms, double seams, zippers, sews on buttons, darning, appliqué, zig-zag, basting, pin tucking, quilting.....just turn the dial to Sew Magic. Next it says that it has a professional serging stitch that allows you to sew a seam and serge the edge of the material in one operation. Sew & serge cutter that trims the fabric with purchase of machines. Humm?
And then it says that it is designed to sew all fabrics without pressure adjustments (lLevis, canvas, upholstery, nylon, stretch materials, silk, percale, organdy and leather).
This ad shows the Singer name, but does not say who made the machines or where they are made.
Tell me what you think. Is it a deal or a dud?
